Jim Wallis Promotes Contemplative Prayer

This may not come as a big shock to anyone familiar with Jim Wallis or Tony Campolo of "God's Politics" blog but HERE Jim Wallis is promoting Contemplative prayer via the monastics and mystics.

The Contemplative prayer trend seems to be showing up all over the place.

Why?

Here is an excerpt from the article:

"...prayer is more often becoming a time of listening than talking. There is so much noise in our world and our lives (much of our own making); prayer becomes a quiet space enabling us to stop talking long enough to see what God might be trying to say to us. The disciplines of prayer, silence, and contemplation practices by the monastics and mystics are precisely that – stopping the noise, slowing down, and becoming still, so that God can break through all our activity and noise in order to speak to us."

Yes, contemplative is permeating our culture and the Church at an alarming rate. What's most disconcerting is that few Christians seem to be alarmed. Many Christians are embracing it as truth. And, those of us who call it error are chastised for doing so.

I believe that the last days are finally here.

So the Holy Spirit is no longer active?

People here actively oppose Lectio Divina, which is contemplating the Word of God?

Say it isn't so!

Is your Trinity made up of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Bible?
